Alice Walker Is Under Fire.
Renowned author Alice Walker is currently under fire after recommending And the Truth Shall Set You Free in a New York Times profile. The controversy arises as many point out that the book—written by David Icke—contains anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.
“In Icke’s books there is the whole of existence, on this planet and several others, to think about,” Walker stated. “A curious person’s dream come true.”
Tablet Magazine has noted that Icke is one of Britain’s most well-known anti-Semites. He also believes that “lizards, posing as people, have taken over the highest echelons of government and society,” as noted by Buzzfeed.
Her praise for Icke dates as far back as 2013, Buzzfeed adds.
